Step into the World's Largest Cave: Son Doong, Vietnam | Tourism on the Edge

Step into the World's Largest Cave: Son Doong, Vietnam | Tourism on the Edge


Tourism on the Edge

According to the geologists from National Geographic, Son Doong (or the ‘Mountain River’) is the world’s largest cave. The natural landmark is located in Phong Nha-Ke Bang National Park, near Vietnam’s border with Laos. The cave was discovered by a courageous man in 1991, who decided to face the fear of local jungle men and see what lies beneath. The jungle men were afraid to go inside the cave because of the whistling sound made by the fast-flowing underground river. In 2009, when a group of British scientists from the British Cave Research Association explored the national park, the cave became an official landmark. From the Truong Son Highway, the explorers had to walk around 6 hours through a 10 kilometers long forest path to get to the mouth of Son Doong cave. Then, the scientists had to descend using special climbing gear, in order to reach the deep craters. After this adventurous descend on ropes, they came across amazing caverns, large enough to host an entire city street inside them. Their measurements reavealed that the main passage through Son Doong Cave is more than 5 kilometers long, 200 meters high and 150 meters wide. With these dimensions, Son Doong took the title …
